The African buffalo, also known as the Cape buffalo, is one of the Big Five, along with the lion, leopard, rhinoceros and elephant. This buffalo can weigh 1,000 kg. Buffalo is widely distributed in eastern and southern Africa and is not an endangered species.
Lions surround the poor buffalo
In the clip, when discovering a herd of wild buffalo wandering in the meadow, the lions tried to approach and grabbed a male buffalo. Despite their superiority in numbers, the lions still could not take down their prey as easily as they had calculated.
Meanwhile, when continuously attacked and stalked by predators, buffalo immediately launched fierce counterattacks. He was determined not to let the lions defeat him, because he knew that if he was knocked down by a predator, death would come easier for him.
But all the lions had to run away in pity!
However, after struggling for a while, something unexpected happened. When hearing the cries of their fellows, the herd of wild buffaloes rushed to rescue the member in distress. Seeing that the enemy was too large, the lions immediately “ran away and ran for people”, pitifully letting their prey escape.
